It's been a few years since I'd been back to Grundy but my wife and I decided to visit last week to see the new town. On our way over we decided to eat at the Rainbow since we used to enjoy eating there when we grew up. We almost didn't go in when we pulled up because it looks more like a law office but unfortunately we went in to enjoy our favorite greasy spoon. It is nice inside but the Rainbow we knew was obviously long gone. Instead of a reasonably priced meal, the menu was nothing but a disappointment to us. We should have left after seeing it but we hated to leave after just having a soda. We had an appetizer which was ok but very over priced and we ate at Subway on down the road. What has happened to the Rainbow we grew up knowing?

If greed is what you think. Its more because of jealous people. I have found there places are more expensive than the rainbow. the chef at the rainbow is world renown. Just because you dont want to pay for dont go. no one is twisting your arm

What fantasy world are you living in when you state, "the chef at the rainbow is world renown"? Just because you are living in a dream world does not mean everyone else lives there too! That is the funniest thing I ever heard! HA! HA! HA!

I really miss the old Rainbow with it's food and down home atmosphere. I don't understand why someone would keep a name on a building if they were going to completely change the food and interior of the place inside. The Rainbow is a good memory of an erra gone by and no matter what they try to put in that building under that name it will always come up short in comparison. If I were the owner I'd change the name and start over.

Wanda Sparks was NEVER owner of the Rainbow....she ran it for Mickey for a while, and people quit eating there. She couldn't keep anything she ran open. Glema Goff, and Betty Street were the ones who made the Rainbow the magnificent place it was. I sure miss them, and the wonderful food. Sadly the food will never be the same. The person referred to as world renowned chef is from Poplar Creek.

I guess Mickey has got what he paid for. Really should consider Food for the area. Pay more attention to the service. I would love to have a nice place to go eat.

Dotsons sucks. Was at the rainbow last night had a cheese burger it was great. The inside of the building is very nice and new. It's about time someone done something nice around here. Good job on the remodel. Hey Grundy people don't hate the player hate the game but the rainbow is a good place to eat.
